At 3M, we know patient comfort and satisfaction is paramount, which is why we have developed these smart skin care solutions to protect and maintain the skin, including conditions ranging from Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis and Medical Adhesive Related Skin Injuries (MARSI) to Periwound and Peristomal Moisture-Associated Skin Damage.
What if you could offer more relief – and help restore dignity – to the ostomy patients in your care?
You know the challenges: Adhesive trauma, bodily fluids, and friction can quickly break down skin. And patients with a problem stoma and/or high output are especially vulnerable.
Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film is ideally suited for peristomal skin care. Its unique polymer formulation creates a breathable, waterproof coating, clinically proven to provide long-lasting protection against urine, stool, adhesive irritation and friction.
Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film is an easy-to-use and time saving alternative to traditional skin care protocols using barrier ointments or creams. More important, it offers a simple, proven solution that can help improve your patients’ conditions and their quality of life.
The periwound area is vulnerable to damage from wound drainage and adhesives; 3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film can help you protect against periwound skin injury.
3M has more than 70 pieces of clinical evidence supporting the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film—more evidence than any other moisture barrier or barrier film.
One study compared the durability of four barrier film products and found after 72 hours of wear, Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film was more than twice as effective at preventing wash-off and wear-off of a marker substance from the skin compared to Medline Sureprep® No-Sting Skin Protectant.2
